No all shearlings I've found have been shit. Saw some OK ones on FF but will prob still be three grand with the 10% off. Don't tell me you got rid of your Rick one

i don;t think you can get away with one as a casual coat anyway, always was a work coat for me.

I bought a Rick shearling from Mr P sale last year. Fit was so weird - Really baggy arms. I'm still looking for a nice one. Cool Maragret Howell car coat on her website. Hoping to go in at sale time

sale time

Don't think I even buy that much. I'm furnishing my flat and buying a car at the moment. They're some real expenses compared £200-300 for an item of clothing

It will be worse you start buying SS17 stuff. SI SS17 has already landed.

Looking for a decent overcoat in black £500ish max - pref for a slimmer/shorter build. Best places to check out?

Bought a Golf tdi 1.6 match - I'm not a massive car guy but it's bigger and more comfortable than my last motor

There's two at all saints that look decent, not looked into it though as their xxl is usually a bit snug for a big lad like me

Whenever did the quality on Woolrich go south?

Bought a 'Luxury' rendition of the Arctic DF - and it can't hold a candle to the one I've had for quite some time.
Thin - they took the stingy approach to down filling, nasty materials, poor fit, sloppy finish. Several loose stitches. Not heavy duty, or arctic proof in any way. Made in Moldavia of all places, I'd expected better of a coat that retails for an additional 100 gbp on an already steep price. Edging towards a grand RRP. Definitely not worth it.

Going to stick with my old Made in the US one for a bit longer. Despite the shaggy trim looking like roadkill. Pff.
